Cupping therapy is a form of therapy where suction cups are placed around various parts of the body. The main principle behind cupping is that the suction created encourages blood and lymph flow to promote the healing of a broad range of medical ailments. There are two main types of cupping: dry and wet. Dry cupping, currently practiced at The Physio Company, is when the therapy relies solely on the creation of suction. In dry cupping, there are two main ways that people are treated. Flash cupping is where the cups are placed and removed very quickly, without being moved around. The other technique is known by a few different names, such as sliding cupping or gliding cupping. This is where the cups are placed on the body and moved around without breaking contact with the skin. This aims to increase circulation and acts as a sort of massage.
